Last year when I was Living Great in '08 I began taking fiber upon Dr. Oz's recommendation. I swear I would follow that man right off a cliff, because I believe every word that comes out of his mouth. My typical breakfast is a Kashi Bar, so I eat fiber, but always feel like I should get a little more. Couldn't hurt, right?

My first Fabu Fiber Adventure began with Benefiber. Have any of you ever taken Benefiber? It's the Rolls-Royce of Fiber, my friends! It honestly dissolves perfectly into whatever you pour it in. It has no taste, it is not grainy, it's is invisible fiber perfection!

Benefiber is a little on the expensive side, so I figured I'd try it's very very striped down non-luxury version Metamucil. So not the same. I read the directions and poured a tablespoon into water and figured I'd gulp it down quickly. It is with major regret that I have to inform you that I DIDN'T take a picture of the SLUDGE! Yep, it turned to sludge when I didn't drink it fast enough! SO GROSS!

I've always been the kind of person that like pain though. When I got my nose pierced in college the piercer asked me if I preferred the gun or the needle. I picked the needle. So, with the Metamucil I figured, what the hell, what if I put a tablespoon of it straight into my mouth and then drank the water? I have to say... it wasn't that bad! To me it was much MUCH easier than sludge chugging!

So Ladies, be brave and add some Fabu Fiber to your already healthy diet. And just this once, do NOT feel bad about splurging on the Rolls Royce!
